Higher education development

The development of teaching and learning in higher education has a long tradition at Lund University. The most important work takes place in close connection with the students, at the departments, and in teaching teams, characterised by a reflective and scholarly approach to education, teaching, and the teaching profession. The training in teaching and learning in higher education aimed at staff who teach and supervise at the university is an important part of the development work.  

Training in teaching and learning in higher education

Training in teaching and learning in higher education is aimed at teaching staff at Lund University. For example, this could be lecturers (new or experienced), doctoral students, research supervisors, professors, or librarians.

In most cases, training in teaching and learning in higher education is compulsory in order to teach at the University. The training is based on the national recommendations of the Association of Swedish Higher Education Institutions.

Four units at Lund University offer training in teaching and learning in higher education:

Each faculty is responsible for the training in teaching and learning in higher education. University-wide courses are organised by the Division of Higher Education Development. Faculty-specific courses are organised by CEE (Faculty of Engineering), MedCUL (Faculty of Medicine), and PLUS (Faculty of Science).

Teaching expertise is a requirement

Teaching expertise is required for you to be offered a permanent position as a member of the teaching staff at Lund University. At least five weeks of training in teaching and learning in higher education (or equivalent qualification) is part of the teaching expertise. 

Promotion requires additional continued development of your teaching expertise, something you can achieve through training in teaching and learning in higher education, among other things. 

Training for doctoral students

Doctoral students with teaching duties are expected to complete at least two weeks of training in teaching and learning in higher education. 

Doctoral supervision

Training in doctoral supervision is open to those members of teaching staff who have or will have, the task of supervising doctoral students. Training in doctoral supervision is required for supervising doctoral students.
